Michelle started her journey at Side by Side Kids as an Afterschool Teacher at JJ Pickle Elementary in the fall of 2014. While serving as an Afterschool Teacher, Michelle realized that she loved working with her students at SBSK so much that she was led to be the Site Coordinator at Pickle the following year. Since then, she has been in various leadership and management roles in the Afterschool Program, the most recent being the Afterschool Program Director. In 2012, she graduated from Oral Roberts University with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. In 2015, Michelle graduated from Bethel School of Ministry with a focus in leadership, Biblical studies, identity in Christ, and ministry.

Michelle’s hope and desire is that students would know that they are deeply loved by God as a Father and a have a faithful friend in Jesus. Outside of SBSK, Michelle enjoys spending time with her close friends and family, traveling, learning to play the guitar, and keeping up with all things pop culture!
